Microsoft yesterday launched Internet Explorer 8, the latest version of its web browser which it says has been developed with security in mind.
The company claims that IE8 blocks two to four times more malware attacks than other browsers.
Microsoft developed the new browser with a security focus after extensive research and input from "tens of millions" of customer sessions showed security was of paramount importance to internet users, Microsoft said.
It also includes features such as "accelerators" - which allow users to right-click a word and instantly email or share it - and "web slices" - which make information from sites such as Digg, Yahoo mail and eBay available from any web page.
The browser is available for download in 25 languages.
The company has now launched a new site dedicated to showcasing these experiments and soliciting new ones.
"The results of their experimentation have been great, with each project turning the browser window into an interactive application, a game, or even a piece of art," said Aaron Koblin, an employee of Google's Creative Lab.
